Footwell lighting

Hi all,

I'm looking to add lights in the foot well area of my camaro. Should i go with multi-colored strips for the hell of it or just the one colored set? Could anyone show me a pic of what theirs look like at night? Thanks

I got these lights for $24 at Autozone, took a couple hours to install due to having to be upside down in an uncomfortable position that gave me a horrible headache. A few days later a friend who was half my height got down there and zip tied them to make them permanent. Been doing good for the last five months! This was the second mod I did to my car since I bought it. Love the look of this!!

I did the simple install option. I have them come on when the door or dome light comes on. So they fade on and off. Didn't want them on all the time and didn't want to have more options other than red. Next I want to do the "Synergy" lighting in the dash and door in red next year!!

I went with Diode Dynamics foot well lighting kit . I liked the multi colored strips so I could change it if I liked . plus this way you can do 3 way flash , & fade or 7 color flash & fade or program auto going through all the patterns . also it has strobe . I put a 20 inch strip under each side , then ran it to the fuse panel on the drivers door , Used the trunk fuse , added a add a circuit and wired it up with the controller , mounted the box and cables in the fuse panel , Now with the remote I can just turn it on & off when I want to and change colors anytime . it's not wired to anything else , this way I can can turn it on for car shows and such . plus no toggle or on & off switch , just the remote control . This works best for what I wanted ...Only took me a hour to install and worked great . I also add on more light strips if I like . I use the same set up in my engine bay and I have 8 Strips of 20 inch led lights in there on a separate remote control .Best bang for the buck IMOPN.

I didn't have any interest in color changing. I am running one 9 inch LED tube light in each front and rear foot well. They come on with the dime light, doors, or their own switch.

Wow that's hella bright, SimpleGreen!! Do you feel like your in one of those porn booths with all that red light lol?!? I didn't want it that bright and wanted it closer to a factory look. So mine is more subtle than in your face ..

I just bought the footwell multi-color , the cup holder, and doorpuul lights all from Diode Dynamics. I bought all of them rgb or multicolor with the intention of running different colors on each but the company only sent one led controller and remote which makes no sense to me since I ordered them all rgb. Anyway I'll deal with them on that but does anyone have any info on how to install all this without tearing my 2015 up? Instructions are vague and not finding many vids on YouTube for the cup holder or doorpuul lights! Thanks

Pictures make it look more extreme that it is, but I like it either way

Finally bought a strips of LED lights for this project. Does anyone have a schematic on how & where I need to splice to have the LED work with the dome light circuit?

Graphicsgod: By your description, this is what I'd like to do but have no idea where to start. Can you give any advice / schematics into which wires you spliced your LED's?

BIO-HAZARD: Your install seems like it'd be less risky than trying to splice into the master harness. Do you have any sketches / schematics to compliment what you described above? Is there any way to set up your remote to work only when the doors open & close?

Thanks for your reply.

I bought a 5 strip set of blue.
Planing on one in each footwell, one under each door so it will light up the ground when open and one in the trunk.
Now I just need to find the wiring schematic.
I want them to work just the way the inside dome and trunk lights work
